Seven friends, officers of the Warsaw’s traffic police department, are leading seemingly fulfilled lives. They work together, party together, together they play jokes, cut small deals, chase women and sport fast cars. Their small world gets rocked when one of them is found murdered. Sergeant Król becomes a chief suspect in the case. He manages to escape arrest and as a fugitive tries to prove his innocence. Slowly he begins to uncover a corruption scheme which points towards high circles of authority in police and politics. And don't be fooled by the bland title: this breakneck-fast plunge into a rancidly corrupt Warsaw police-division is strong meat indeed, its violently savage cynicism expertly marbled with a streak of ribald black humor.
